What is EBM Day ?
Ever since Front 242 started up in 1981 the number 242 has held a special position in the numerology of Electronic Body Music. Using the date format often used in Europe (dd/mm = 24/2) it’s fairly obvious why the International EBM day is celebrated on february 24.
Though people over the world probably have celebrated this day before along with their friends, it has never been an official celebration day before. But from now on, every year on february the 24th; it’s International EBM day! Its only purpose is that all EBM fans over the world now have a special day when they can get together and listen to, or dance to, or party to, Electronic Body Music.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
